Halloween Book Tag I — chasing destino

Halloween Book Tag

Welcome aboard, train wreck.

It’s been a bit since I’ve done a book tag and since it’s Halloween I figured it made sense to do a Halloween Book Tag. I found this on Chasing Destino’s blog. Check it out here https://chasingdestino.com/2021/10/09/halloween-book-tag-i/

If this is your first time here, welcome aboard, train wreck. Glad to have you here. If this isn’t your first time here, I’m still glad to have you. Please like, comment, share, and subscribe. My goal is to have five hundred subscribers by the end of the year. I think we can make that happen. You can help support this blog with a donation. Every little bit helps. As always, I will link the books and where you can buy them. When you use my links to buy, I may earn a small commission at no extra cost to you. This helps me buy more books to read and review. And coffee and wine for the rest of my time that isn’t reading. So, thank you.

Favorite Horror Book

The Shining by Stephen King

This book is by far supreme to the movie. And the movie is one of my favorites. The trick of using the discordant strings throughout the movie. Just barely audible throughout the movie but ever present. Screeching in the background. The camera work is stunning. But in the end, all respect to Shelley Duvall who literally went mad from the abusive suffered under the director and Jack. I always used to get upset about her choking up on that bat. Then I learned she did that scene 127 times. Which is a world record. She was dehydrated and had injured her hands. But we’ll save misogyny in the film industry for another day.

Scariest moment you’ve read in a book?

Doctor Sleep: A Novel by Stephen King

Spoiler alert – If you haven’t seen the movie or read the book, move on to the next part. Otherwise, sorry bout ya. OK. Seriously. The camper people stalked a kid, kidnapped him, and killed him. Slowly. Painfully. In horrific, terrible details. Literally, this is my nightmare as a parent. And knowing that kid suffered so badly. And knowing what his parents were going through. My gods, I hate this scene because it scared me so much I cried. I held my head in my hands and cried. This is on my 31 in 31 and I’m debating whether I will skip that section.

Have you dressed up as a book character for Halloween?

No. Not that I can remember. But I am debating being a book fairy or Rose the Hat this year. I better make a choice soon. The time approaches.

What do you think your favorite fictional character would dress up as for Halloween?

I think Penny McClure from Cleo Coyle’s Haunted Bookshop Series would dress as a book fairy. I think she would use a book that was beyond repair so as not to destroy a book for a costume.

If books were as cheap as candy, what book would you give out to trick or treaters?

This book is truly the best example of never giving up and the meaning of friendship. Everyone should read it.
